The Summer Solstice socks are knitted in a beautiful lace and cable pattern which makes me think of flower wreaths on midsummer eve.

The socks are knitted from the cuff down towards the toes. They are started with an optional tubular cast on which provides a stretchy edge to the cuff. The heel flaps are knitted with a reinforced stitch pattern for durability and the heels are round French heels. Instructions are given for modifying the gusset for a more generous fit.

The Summer Solstice socks look best in solid or slightly variegated colors for the stitch pattern to show in its full glory. The stitch patterns are adapted and slightly modified from Hitomi Shida’s Japanese Knitting Stitch Bible.
